In the "Non Sequitur" cartoon today there was an interesting statement.
"Stupid is a condition.
Ignorance is a choice."
Another story in the newspaper continues to discuss the 10 year battle over trying to update the technology in the state by outsourcing and the continuing struggle of keeping up with hardware and software without increasing the billion allotted to the task or meeting the deadlines. One director has been fired for suggesting holding payment until the outsource company meets preset goals and conditions of the contract.
And yet the state has hired consultants to suggest it take back the task of updating and installing technology and communication under the commonwealth authority and IT for an additional cost of $400 million in this already over budget down economy.
Is this process and the committees involved "stupid" or are we, a citizens and voters "ignorant" to think we will ever catch up?
